Chisinau, 23 April /MOLDPRES/ - President Maia Sandu, after a today’s meeting of the Supreme Security Council (CSS), informed that she had demanded that the Prosecutor General’s Office investigates what happened in parliament today, through the light of the attempt of state power’s usurpation and asked the Intelligence and Security Service (SIS) not to allow destabilization.
The head of state described the today’s actions by the MPs as illegal and asked the leaders of the law-enforcement bodies not to become victims of the pressures and not let themselves involved in illegal actions. She called on the international community to keep an eye on the situation in Moldova and provide support for the defence of the democracy.
“The unconstitutional decisions, voted in parliament today, represent the undermining of the constitutional order and the rule of law state. No attack against the Constitutional Court will be tolerated. We ask the parliament to cease these anti-democratic sideslips. Those who commit these unlawful acts are liable to punishment,’’ Sandu said.
At the today’s parliament meeting, the majority made up of the Party of Socialists, Shor Party and For Moldova cancelled the decision on the appointment of Domnica Manole as judge of the Constitutional Court (CCM). Subsequently, the lawmakers voted for the candidacy of Boris Lupascu for position of judge at CCM. Lupascu took the oath in the lack of the head of state.
More ambassadors informed that they had taken act of the worrying decision taken by the parliament today.
